Pod - Students

Students, the main client group of education and training systems, are a very diverse group. This group can include those studying at home or in a different country and under various arrangements such as formal qualifications at all levels, non-credit bearing courses, competency training in the workplace, or learning through mentoring relationships. Non-traditional students can include those beyond traditional school age and those from groups who have been historically under-represented, particularly in post compulsory education. Research in this area focuses on student motivations for learning, participation in, and outcomes of, education and training and the quality of delivery methods.
